10,000 Irish men dies in WW2 fighting with Irish regiments in the British Army. Ireland was a neutral nation during WW 2 however in reality the Irish were neutral in name only. The Irish military supplied valuable information to the Allies about German U-Boat activity west of Ireland. They also allowed a secrete air corridor for the RAF to fly over neutral air space. Downed British RAF crews were assisted back across the border into Northern Ireland while German air crews were detained. A secrete numbering system along the Irish coast allowed US and British pilots to know their exact location.
It should be noted also that the last British occupying troops only left Bearhaven in Cork, Lough Swilly, and Cobh one year before the outbreak of WW2 despite the fact that Ireland was supposed to be a free and independent state since 1922. So feelings in Ireland were running high at that time.
